TGIF! Please welcome Sylvie Grayson to my blog today with her book, False Confessions. First, she shares an incident that happened to her and the incident that ended up in her book!
I always say—write what you know--and a lot of my own experiences end up in my books. When I was thirteen, I was doing home schooling, as the local two-room schoolhouse only went to grade eight. My job was to walk my younger sister to the bus stop a few miles down the road. One morning was different. Our dog, Captain, had come with us but as usual had headed off into the bush, yelping as he chased rabbits. The road had a light dusting of snow, making it easy walking, with eight foot high snowbanks on either side.
I headed back toward home, having seen my sister onto the bus. Soon I heard Captain yelping through the trees, getting louder all the time. He dashed up the bank and bounded down onto the road in front of me. I called him, but he didn’t slow, just raced across the road and up the other bank into the trees.
I soon saw why. Two Timberwolves leaped to the top of the snowbank and stopped when they saw me. We stared at each other, my heart racing. Then I raised my arms and yelled. I thought it was best to appear as big as possible and unafraid. They turned as one, leaped across the road and up the other snowbank, disappearing into the forest after Captain.
I was convinced we would never see the dog again. He had been running flat out, while the wolves loped along behind him. But by noon Captain had arrived home. He lay sleeping in front of the barrel heater and didn’t stir for the rest of the day.
That encounter ended up in the book, False Confession, when the characters were stranded in northern British Columbia during a snowstorm.
Aww, that poor puppy! Now I know I have to get the book and read about that puppy and Glory. Tell us some more about your book!
Music teacher Glory has given up on men, with good reason. Then she meets the handsome lead guitar player in the band she has just joined.
Alex, body builder and construction foreman, is determinedly single because he’s given up on women. But that’s before he meets the keyboard player who just joined his brother’s rock band. Suddenly his interest is revived and he goes on a crusade to gain Glory’s attention.
But when Alex disappears and the police claim they have a confession giving damning evidence against him, Glory must make a decision. Can she trust the man she’s fallen for, or has she been fooled into believing a lie?
Tagline – Did Glory fall for the wrong man, or is someone lying?

What reviewers say about Sylvie Grayson’s books -
Hooked. I loved the story and characters, they were all rich and well developed. Could not put this book down and must say, I am now a fan…
I really enjoyed this book. It is well written with a strong female main character and a beautiful storyline with hardship and pain as well as love. I found it hard to put down and read it in one sitting. Looking forward to reading more of her work…
Fascinating blurb and great reviews. I did a little research on Sylvie and managed to come up with this.
Sylvie Grayson loves to write about suspense, romance and attempted murder, in both contemporary and science fiction/fantasy. She has lived most of her life in British Columbia, Canada in spots ranging from Vancouver Island on the west coast to the North Peace River country and the Kootenays in the beautiful interior.

She has been an English language instructor, a nightclub manager, an auto shop bookkeeper and a lawyer. Now she works part time as the owner of a small company, and writes when she finds the time.

What a scary adventure! sometimes I don't even realize that my real life is reflected in my books until someone who knows me reads one and comments. It takes me by surprise. I intentionally use real people--or bits of them--as character fodder, though. Nice post!
